The Raveonettes are one of those bands that I’ve been ignoring. Sometimes I do this with bands to the point where when I finally decide to blog about them, I feel like I’m expected to know something about them. I’ll be honest with you, I know nothing about the Raveonettes. They could have a #1 hit on MTV and I’d be oblivious. Every time I see their name mentioned I black out.

I finally took the time to check them out, (thanks to PMA and the other sites that have been putting them out there), and I was pleasantly surprised. They’ve got a pop rock sound with an emphasis on pop. But more dark hipster 50’s inspired pop than bright 90’s inspired pop star pop. So be like the new me and check them out, or be like the old me and erase everything you’ve just read.

These are both off The Raveonettes latest album In And Out Of Control. Buy it.
